Update from the pastor 3/20/20 –

Dear Christ Church Family and Friends,


It has been a week. A week of social distancing. A week of uncertainty about the future and our ability to contain a pandemic. A week of new habits and routines. I hope and pray that you are all doing well. Know that if you are adhering to the mandate to work from home, homeschool your children, and maintain social distance from others outside of your household, you do so as an act of solidarity with health professionals and those at greatest risk of contracting the virus. You are in effect loving your neighbor. Please continue to do so.


I know that for many of you absence from church for Sunday service is a blow. We take solace in knowing that the church is not the building but the people who gather there for worship. We are the church and will continue to be the church in these uncertain times. Your church leadership has been hard at work setting up systems that we may continue to worship, pray, give, and serve members and the wider community.


As we face the uncertainty of the future together, I ask that we continue to draw closer spiritually though we are distant physically. To this end, I invite you to participate in actual church on virtual platforms. Wednesday’s at 7 pm I invite you to join me on Facebook (Christ UMC-Piscataway) for half an hour of prayer. You may leave your prayer requests in the comments. On  Sundays we will worship as one unified body located in many different places. We are hard at work planning and preparing a meaningful and timely service that will include music, prayer, Time with Young Disciples, and the opportunity to give. The service will be available online on Facebook and Youtube starting at 8 am.


I look forward to praying and worshipping with you on these internet streets and serving God in the world around us.


Peace-with justice and mercy,

Pastor Howard
